MT-25 Microtron

On  January 30, 1973 an electron accelerator – microtron MT-17 was put into operation. It was made under G.N.Flerov’s support with the help of S.P.Kapitsa’s Laboratory of IPP. It was totally upgraded in 1980 (MT-22) and in 1986 (MT-25).

This microtron is used for study and production of ultraclean radioisotopes.
